Welcome! I’m Jill Yerkes, the school social worker at Palos South. I've been working in District 118 as a school social worker since 2001.

I enjoy my position immensely.  Helping students navigate the common social and emotional difficulties at school can be challenging, but is always rewarding.  Our hope at Palos South is that we can prevent these issues from interfering with a student's academic potential. We achieve this through individual and group social work sessions, teacher consultation, and school-wide programs addressing self-esteem and bullying.  I also enjoy my position as the co-sponsor of Snowflake, an annual event designed to help students deal with peer pressure and in making good choices.

Please feel free to contact me at any time if I can assist your child and/or your family.
